for a new underground nuclear test. the north korean government confirmed the test after seismic activity of 4.9 magnitude was picked up in the korean peninsula. north korea had vowed to conduct rocket launches and a u.s.-and declared test after the u.n. security council resolution tightened sanctions in response to rocket launch two months ago. in a statement, u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon condemned the test, calling it "deplorable" and "a clear and grave violation." the security council is holding an emergency session on north korea later today. two men have been charged in the shooting death of a 15-year-old girl struck by random gunfire just days after performing at president obama's inauguration. hadiya pendleton had recently returned from washington, where she performed with her school marching band during the inaugural festivities. she was laid to rest saturday at a funeral attended by first lady michelle obama. police said the suspects are 18 and 20-year-old members of a street gang who opened fire at who they mistakenly thought were gang rivals. the white house meanwhile has
at the sequester over ten years, we're talking about 1.2 trillion out of $47 trillion in projected government spending. is it really impossible to find less than 3% of savings in a federal budget without making those kind of horrible cuts? >> you know what, it's not impossible, and that's exactly what the president has done over the last year, $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. he's ready to do another trillion and a half to get up to the $4 trillion target that economists across the country tell us is needed to stabilize the debt over the next ten years. so that's exactly what the president has done working with democrats and republicans. >> but you're going to hold on tax increases -- >> we're going to insist on doing it -- >> which means tax increases. >> insist on doing it in a balanced way, a way that allows us to maintain the kind of investments that middle class families in this country rely on, jon. we were just talking about our families, our kids. you know what, we're not going to put at risk the education investments in this country because we can't get together to resolve this in

developments in the executive order. one is that the federal government has to produce unclassified reports about the cyber threat and distribute them widely to regular businesses that may be the target and the second is that they need to take more of the classified information about the threat and share it beyond the defense sector which is typically where that information sharing has stopped. for people who are concerned about the invasion of an individual's privacy, this is kind of where the rubber meets the road, and critics say that this may be one step closer to really that sort of big data, big brother society that many americans say they fear, jenna. jenna: that is so interesting. there is a fine line here, the people are concerned about wanting to keep us safe but also make sure we can keep our private lives private. a story we'll continue to watch, catherine, thank you so much. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: a desperate search for an escaped inmate. a hunt for a man who police say stabbed an officer four times and somehow got away. how they say he did it coming up. also the vac

concerned that one day the high amount of government debt in japan would catch up to it. over 90% of it is held by japanese. and now, of course, 235% of gdp, the largest of any developed country in the world. and this is something that has to be taken into account as these stimulus programs are pushed ahead, because it's something that japan has got to deal with sooner rather than later. it's sort of like us with our spending problem here. so i think what are we hooking at -- looking at worldwide? i've mentioned the three largest economies in the world. i have not mentioned china because i've been talking about developed economies. but i think we're looking to the emerging markets 2013 to be very much a driver. and we have a new leadership in china, jinping, li will come in as premier. they will take these posts formally in march, and i'm optimistic based on my knowledge of these two individuals -- particularly xi jinping, and i think what you're going to see there is they're going to open up the economy and the financial sector. i think they'll be freeing interest rates, they'll
. it was in the framework of what the government can properly and effectively do to build a middle ground. i was particularly excited to hear him talk about things like refinancing mortgages. things that taxpayers can actually make money on, as he said, put $3000 on average to the average household budget, which will help the economy, raising minimum wage is very important. the emphasis on pre-k education. these are things that not only the government can do effectively and directly affect the economy and to help the middle class, but i was very impressed that he focused on the thing that the government could do best. which implies that the government can't do everything. he met john yarmouth, a democrat of kentucky. giving his quick reaction to the president's state of the union speech. we appreciate your time, sir. on the other side of the capitol, on the senate side, senator bob casey has just had reelection. this past year. a democrat of pennsylvania. sir, i would like to start with your green ribbon. pennsylvania is pretty much a pro-second amendment state, is not? >> it is. the ribbons
as the u.n. likes to call them against the north korean government. >> shep: jonathan, how much closer do they say this activity brings north korea to potentially at least hitting the united states? >> reporter: you remember the rocket launch of north koreans carried out last december. that showed in theory according to the experts that they do have a long-range missile capable of reaching parts of the united states including alaska and hawaii. but the big question here is getting a nuclear weapon small enough that you can mount it on the warhead of such a long-range missile. most experts will tell you the north koreans are at least three years away from being able to master that technology. of course, it's not just about hitting the united states directly. there is also the fear they might share what nuclear technology they have with the likes of iran and two things here. iran would obviously only need to hit israel to spark world war three. north koreans would only need to send a nuclear tipped missile as far as japan if they wanted to spark a major international crisis. >> shep: jonath
other nations opposed to this, the u.s. in particular, of course, saying that the chinese government is particularly opposed to this act. i think that what is important is to note that china's reason for opposing the action are very different from those in the west -- in the west, where political and moral considerations often come into play, china is less squeamish about totalitarianism or political prison camps, for example. what they fear most is instability, which is why they have been opposed to this nuclear test and why their statements are as strongly worded as they are. china is once again likely to impact any sanctions. they may support a toughening of sanctions on military issues and the exports of luxury goods, but they are not likely to want to do anything that brings serious harm to the north korean economy, because what they fear more than anything else is instability and, ultimately, collapse. >> china is a key provider of oil for north korea. if they so wish they could stop supplying that and really pulled the rug out from under north korea's feet. >> exactly. china i

the underground blast was detected, north korea's government said it was the result of a detonation of a miniaturized nuclear device. the test was in direct violation of the u.n. security council's orders for the north to shut down its nuclear program, and it could signal a major step forward for north korea's nuclear program. >> as a reason americans really should care is we need to see what the nature of this test is. if this is a uranium enrichment test, that is a test of highly enriched uranium, that means that they have kind of lapped the iranians on this. and we will not have a good handle on how much of this material they have. >> reporter: last month, north korea's defense commission said the united states is its prime target for its nuclear and rocket programs. the north state-run media says the test is a direct response to sanctions put in place after a december missile launch. this was north korea's first nuclear test under its young leader, kim jong-un. while the white house calls it a provacative act, the u.s. and allies knew the test was coming. >

in the united states on this? >> there is no official reaction from the u.s. government. of course, the u.s. was expecting this ted stevens morning. was speaking to an official that said the test could come any time. obviously they have been bracing for it. right now a lot of frantic telephone calls going on. not only within the u.s. government but also in south korea. the new secretary of state, john kerry, spoke to the south korean foreign minister just moments ago about the latest nuclear test and now everybody is trying to get their diplomatic ducks in a row. everybody getting on the same page. there will be a security council meeting tomorrow morning, 11:00 eastern time. to discuss the next response and that is what the question is. what will the traffic there? will the chinese sign on to the tough resolution that the united states is looking for? will they set on to tough sanctions. it is unclear at this point what china will agree to and that is the best the u.s. can hope for in terms of getting anything out of the u.n. security council. then i also understand the united states is
